6.8 Okay
Pros:Room was comfortable. Bed great
Cons:WiFi not very good. Resort fee of $32 a day did not really provide much
8.0 Very good
Pros:The staff, cleanliness and grounds
Cons:No coffee in lobby or any snacks! To get something in the morning, you had to eat the buffet. We were going on a boat trip, so just wanted fresh coffee and a small roll to start the day. They do have a coffee pot in the room, but no sweeteners, beside coffemate. We have stayed in the past and always had a continental breakfast included in our fees. Think this needs to be addressed, especially with the extra resort fees they add on!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was great
8.0 Very good
Pros:Room had a nice mirror and sink separate from bathroom, overall really comfortable and clean. Provided complimentary water, coffee with creamer, very beautiful front entrance and lobby along with pool and hot tub.
Cons:It's not very clear when check-out is, we went back to make sure we didn't miss any items and we were already checked out and housekeeping threw out everything. We did get two free beverage vouchers, but probably won't be back before expiration. Our window faced the pool and it was really loud in the morning, but fine for one night.
9.1 Wonderful
